- Make a 110% commitment to the job
Likely, this employment opportunity is not your dream job. But it is a job. Rather than be discouraged, wishing for something better, commit to doing your best regardless of the tasks required of you.
- Go the extra mile
Volunteering to stay late, take on additional tasks, or assist a co-worker not only solidifies that 110% commitment, but also demonstrates you have initiative. And employers the world over love initiative.
- Be enthusiastic and appreciative
Make a concentrated effort to display an attitude that clearly says, “I’m happy to be here, and I appreciate the opportunity.” No one likes a Gloomy Gus or Disgruntled Doris. A pleasant demeanor will be remembered for a positive contribution to the workplace environment.
